Today is the final smoothie recipe of the Seven Days of Smoothies series! You’ve Got the Beet! has a respectable amount of fiber from figs (6% per medium fig). Sweet delicious figs also contain calcium, potassium, magnesium, Iron, Vitamins B, C, Selenium, Phosphorus and Zinc. There are two colorful vegetables incorporated into today’s smoothie, (you guessed it beet, and also carrot). Strawberries are a low sugar addition to this smoothie and provide over 140% RDA of Vitamin C. Choose your favorite dairy free milk to add, and don’t forget the protein!
You’ve Got the Beet Smoothie
1 Cup Frozen Strawberries
2 Turkish Figs (soak them if they are not soft for ease in blending)
3 Baby Carrots
1 Slice of Beet (about a Tablespoon)
1/2 Cup Dairy Free Milk
2 Tablespoons Pomegranate Juice Concentrate
1 Tablespoon Fresh Squeezed Lime Juice
Blend it thoroughly to incorporate those figs! Then add:
2 Tablespoons of Grass Fed Gelatin or Your Favorite Protein Powder (add after initial blending and blend just until incorporated to prevent foaming).
Here is a recap of the smoothies shared during the Seven Days of Smoothies! When rotated into your routine, they will keep you from getting into a rut with food choices, and help you include a colorful array of nutrients into your diet!
